What are you talking about? The Grizzlies have lost to 1 team this season who had a losing record when they played and that was at Phoenix on the end of a four game road trip. The Grizzlies problem this season isn't playing down to the weaker opponents but not playing up against the stronger ones.

 

Is there any chance someone will

from last season so we can hear his comments during this game?

Tony Allen lost his passport. It can be really hard to get them replaced if you lose them. And they don't seem to be able to pull strings with that as Haddadi and Gasol both got delayed coming back for this season. I saw this on twitter a week or so ago so I wouldnt be suprised if he does not make this trip.

Yea, that was pretty funny. But he tweeted shortly afterwards that he found it so he'll be there, no worries.

Do US citizens need a passport to go to Canada? I understand if a Spanish or Iranian citizen wants to cross the border but do Americans?

Hey that's great Tony found the passport!

 

I was in Canada for the first time ever when I broke my collar bone this month. The same day actually. Well - you definitely need a passport to get into Canada but let's assume you fake your way across. The US then would totally freak out when you try to come back into the US. They do background checks and analyze everything you're doing each way so don't fool around. They tried to tell me my passport was expired although I had 1 week left on it. I had to defend myself and say "look it's not expired" and then they smiled and said "oh wow look at that, well you better get it renewed as soon as you get home now". They try to get you to panic on purpose and ask funny questions about your license plates and things like that. Also I think they're really bored at these border crossings in the middle of nowhere!!!

Do you really want to take advice from Tony Allen about anything not on a basketball court?

btw Canada is not one of those countries that won't let you in with a passport that is going to expire soon. you can go there and return to US as long as your passport is not currently expired. (Some countries require a 6 month window before they let you enter). but like I said - doesnt mean the border guards aren't going to hassle you about it.

From ESPN a couple months ago. You indeed need your passport to play the Raptors lol

 

 

CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers backup center Samardo Samuels will not play in Toronto because he doesn't have a passport.

 

The team said Samuels did not travel with the club and won't be in uniform Wednesday night as Cleveland visits the Raptors to open a seven-game road trip.

 

The Cavs said Samuels, who is averaging 7.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16 minutes, will rejoin them in Minnesota Thursday.

 

Samuels recently said on his Twitter account that he had lost his passport. He is completing the proper paperwork to get a new one.

 

Also, the Cavs have assigned forward Christian Eyenga to Canton of the NBA D-League. Eyenga has played just one minute this season. He started 18 games for Cleveland last season.

I really wish the Raptors would get relocated. Nothing against Canada, but it's just silly to have ONE team out of 30 playing in a different country. It causes a ton of travel issues. Besides last time I checked, it's the National Basketball Association. Not the International Basketball Association. There's just no need for a Canadian team when there are several US cities that would love a team of their own.

 

But anyways, I'm really confident about this game. As Chip alluded to above, we've done very well against lower level opponents this year. Could I go as far as declaring this an automatic win? :D

I was speaking of last season (sorry for the unclarification)......Last time we played the Raptors in Toronto it took a last second shot to win. Cleveland, 76ers, Wizards?? Last season gave us fits. Also, as of late we haven't really blown anyone out in their arena......except the ATL game. If you think about it....the Denver and GSW games could have easily been in the L column (of course Denver is much better caliber than Raptors). Games like this Raptors game we should be able to win by 15 plus. That's what I was talking about in my usual vague fashion.

So now it's not good enough to beat teams on the road, we need to blow them out too? Ridiculous.

 

The general attitude on this message board after we lose a game is "a loss is a loss" (no such thing as a moral victory). If that's the case, then a WIN is a WIN regardless of the competition, our effort, or the number of points that we won by. There cannot be a double standard.

 

A 1 point win against Toronto holds as much value as a 20 point win over the Heat. A win is a win.

We have to keep winning..especially against the bottom feeders...We should be able to pick up a lot of wins with the teams coming up and Zbo's pending return

Who do we have to watch this game? Calderon, Derozan, Barbara? Marc can have his way with anybody tomorrow and so can Rudy. TA will limit Derozan. Calderon doesn't play much D. Im expecting a lot of deflections off passes. We dominate the East and the below 500 teams anyway. I trust us to win pretty handily.

 

Also, playing the East, teams don't scout well against us or somethin. Cross court passes, steals from the weakside defender. Philly, Atlanta, Knicks all fell victim to our pace, and it was the same last year. The teams that can hurt us are the ones that can run great half court sets. Like Boston destroyed our 2-3 zone which have been very valuable for us to get stops.

If you're referring to my post I never said we needed to blow anyone out.....All I meant was it would be nice to do so on the road and if our team is hitting on all cylinders, we should be able to against the Raptors......Good grief.

 

A win is a win....of course.....they all count as +1 in the W column. But there are easy wins and tough fought wins.....Am I missing something here?

Being patriotic is understandable, but I don't think the Raptors are going anywhere. I've been to a few games in Toronto and I always wonder how they get to pack the place up even with a horrible team. They have good, solid fans over there. It's not New York, but it's probably at least a Top 10 North American city.

Is Bargnani still going to be out? I know he has been missing games with a calf injury. Raptors have been starting....wait for it... Aaron Gray. And we all know from his stint with the Hornets that you cant stop Aaron Gray, you can only hope to contain him.

 

But seriously, for some reason, I dont think we are going to just roll into Toronto and dispatch the hapless Raptors very easily. I watched them against Houston the other night and they had several opportunities to get blown out but they kept coming back and were right there at the end of the game until Lowry started barrelling to the basket and got an old fashioned "and 1" 3 pt play followed by a 3pt dagger he hit from 25 ft.

 

My point is that Toronto hung in there with Houston on the road and was tough. They beat the Hornets in NOLA and are coming home to start a 4 game home stand.

 

21-15 would really look good after tonights game. And as we also know, we do have "effing Rudy Gay man!"

:) I wish they had a Montreal team - I could drive to those games once a year. though I have yet to go to a Nets game either and that's closer.. oh well.

I am pumped to watch tonight's game. It's been too long for me to watch Grizz. I like to see another early lead but just keep pouring it on!
